Life before computers were common and the Internet was pretty much reserved for brainiacs and the government?
When you had a question, you had to look up the answer in a book? A book made of paper?
There were good things about that time. You couldn't just type a word into a search engine and find an answer. You had to go through a thought process of where the answer might be found. Did that question require a dictionary? a thesaurus? an encyclopedia? Maybe a more specialized reference?
Sometimes, the answers come too quickly now. Questions aren't pondered. There's no gestation of thoughts.
Then again, my grandson can spend hours researching the Titanic without waiting for a ride to the library. And he can draw pictures like this:
|Split in half!|
|The rescue ship|
What do you think?
